MacDailyNews readers Eric and Alicia L. have received their brand new 27-iMac Core i7 via FedEx and sent along some unboxing photos:
As you know the glass goes edge-to-edge, but the glass is also on the top of the front edge. If you run a finger along the top edge, it’s not perfectly flat. It has a non-uniform nature to it. Interesting.
Sadly, I didn’t realize that the no-cost change to the numeric keyboard means it’s NOT wireless (look closely online in the store, it just says “Keyboard” for the numeric keyboard option). A trip to the Apple Store today will happen. Hopefully they’ll do a free swapout. There can be no wires!
UPDATE: 12:43pm ET: Eric L. informs us: The bick-and-mortar Apple Retail Stores can’t make swaps from something bought online, but during a phone call to the Online Apple Store, they said they’d ship a wireless keyboard out free, with no need to return the wired one it came with. I know the $29-retail isn’t huge dollars, but it’s such a breath of fresh air dealing with GREAT customer service.
During 1st startup, I was able to plug in a Time Machine external drive, which brought over everything from the MacBook Pro. Painless.
Now I’ve got to take more movies of our kids to take advantage of all this! Oh, and our digital camera’s max resolution isn’t as much as the iMac now.

Thanks, Eric and Alicia — and congratulations!
